When the Democratic presidential campaign hits Florida in full force, no constituency will be more critical to the outcome than the state’s black voters.
African-Americans and Caribbean-Americans have the numbers to decide whether Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders wins the March 15 primary, and whether it’s a blowout victory or a close contest.
The stakes are highest for Clinton, whose campaign has been left reeling by Sanders’ strong showing in states that have already voted. In Florida, Clinton is depending on the deep reservoir of support she enjoys among black voters, political leaders and activists.
But her Florida campaign is just getting started. And so far, black Democratic leaders said, it’s not even visible in the African-American and Caribbean-American communities. (Sun Sentinel)
